At 19, I was your typical San Diego State University Sophomore. Friends, sports, fraternity and most importantly, perfect 20/20 vision. Then it happened, no warning, no time to prepare. Life began to blur. Over the next few months, I lost central vision in my right eye, followed closely by my left. The diagnosis: a rare genetic disorder called Lebers Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON), a disease that affects a mere 100 people in the U.S. each year with no treatment or cure in sight. At first, I thought losing my sight meant forfeiting my life. But I soon learned that with every challenge comes an opportunity for growth.

With some hard work, dedication, and the support of the team I created around me, a year after losing my sight I was able to compete in and won the World Blind Golf Championship in England.

I continually strive to raise awareness of LHON, and along with the help of my friends, we have created the C.U.R.E. Ride (Cycling Under Reduced Eyesight), an annual fundraising bike ride that’s raised over $300,000 for LHON research. My goal is to raise a million.

Now, I focus my attention on inspiring audiences all over the world, sharing my story and encouraging others to gain perspective in their lives. I have had the privilege of being featured on ABC’s 20/20,, MTV’s True Life and and I have spoken for many prestigious companies including Wells Fargo, Aflac, Honda, Kaiser Permanente, John Hancock and many more. In each presentation, the message is that life is about making choices and if you choose to have a positive outlook, resolute purpose, and a hint of humor, anything is possible.

Whether with friends, on the fairway, or in front of a packed crowd, I am still your everyday guy with an extraordinary story to tell.

Together We Are Limitless

I am not your ordinary motivational speaker. With a powerful personal narrative, a little wit and a strong inspirational message, I provide perspective to audiences and open their eyes to see the power of interdependence.

Although I cannot see my audiences, I can help them see how to effect change and positivity in their own lives. My mission is to help people suspend judgment and focus on the good. My objective is not to dictate how to succeed in life; I speak from experience to convince individuals that independence is good, while interdependence is great.

How will you find the power of interdependence in your life?

Key Takeaways:

  • Seeing the Power of Interdependence
  • Suspending Judgment
  • Focus on the Good
